Ok so now that I finaly got my back issue fixed I have found new power in my drives. Odly enough I was thinking that I had backed off the "crushing" drive style I had, and more took to Scott Papas teaching. That is " just throw up to the basket, not at it", I.E. keeping the disc in the fairway and not trying to klii it off the t-pad.
Now I have had a couple of grip lock drives (RHBH) that went well over 400ft, big massive anti-hyzer bombs that just kept going... The first was at Hornings, Canyon course, hole 13. What was suposed to be a nice wide hyzer drive up the hill ended up with a grip lock drive that ended in the parking lot.
The second was yesterday at Lake Fenwick, hole 16. Its a 350?ft drive with a close tight window, with an more open fairway. So I threw my Rampage out the middle, with a bit of anti-hyzer on it. Well I got that darn grip lock again and parked hole 1 basket, about another 100 ft up and right, across the parking lot from 16's basket!!
The realy strange this is that to me, neither drive had any power to it, I mean like zero energy. I just ment to give the disc some spin and get a good 250-300ft fairway drive. I know the Rampage is a fast driver, but that doesnt explain how in the world I got that distance with no effort. Even on my best of drives, trying my hardest, I could barely get that distance.
I'm not shure what I changed in my drive style, but I hope I can get that under control. This morning I did get another good drive at white river. Hole 16s basket has been moved another 90ft? or so farther back from the deep position. Now its a par 4?? and 425ft?? To my total dis-belief I was able to drive my Rampage to the original deep position, then flick (LHFH) my Rival into the basket for a 2.
Its wierd, I did not put any effort into the drive, or so I thought. Even the other players with me said it looked effortless, as I had a stupified look on my face.
I'm not shure where this grip-lock issue came from, but its getting me some serious distance. Mabe I need to get the video camera out and shoot some footage of what I've got going on. Realy all I have done is to keep my run-up as compact and slow as possible, and keep a tight grip on the disc. The harder I try to throw, the worse the drive gets. If I just stick to a slow easy drive, I get grip-lock and a massive anit-hyzer bomb???
